Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn, Elizabeth Taylor and Diana, Princess of Wales; all of these stars are known for their style, grace, glamour and elegance, and all of them have been dressed by Bellville Sassoon. The British couture label has been synonymous with high-end fashion for over 50 years and was founded by Belinda Bellville in 1953, with David Sassoon joining the company in 1970. It is one of the only labels to have designed for every member of the royal family (except the Queen) and has long been a favourite of some of the world’s most stylish women. 

The Glamour of Bellville Sassoon exhibition, which opens on 20th September at the Fashion and Textile Museum in London, will feature 150 creations spanning six fabulous decades. The display will also show sketches of dresses made for one of the label’s most famous clients, Diana, Princess of Wales, which feature annotations made by the Princess herself. It will also explore the influence of ready-to-wear and Vogue patterns.

To find out more and book tickets, visit the Fashion and Textile Museum website. An evening with the man himself, David Sassoon – which will feature a talk on couture and ready-to-wear fashion over the past 40 years, as well as a book signing – is also taking place on 24th October. Spaces are limited, so it’s best to book early to avoid disappointment.
